October 14, 2020 / 04:56 PM IST

Apple unveiled its much awaited iPhone 12 5G series at a virtual event on October 13. The Cupertino-based OEM introduced four variants of the smartphone that includes the iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.

As the event concluded, it sparked discussions on social media with people talking about the phone's price in India, its features and Apple's decision to stop selling wall chargers with phones. Needless to say, the launch set Twitter abuzz with jokes and memes around the announcement with #Appleevent dominating trends.

Some users even pointed out the similarity between the new iPhone 12 phones and the old iPhone 5.

Check out a few reactions here:

At the event, Apple announced that it will no longer include a charging adapter and EarPods in the iPhone box. The company confirmed that the move will also be applicable to its older generation iPhones, including the iPhone 11, iPhone XR, and iPhone SE.

Apple said it is removing the accessories to reduce carbon emissions. Removing the accessories from the iPhone 12 box will significantly help reduce the size of the shipping box. It will also help Apple save 2 million metric tons of carbon annually, helping it reach its goal of going carbon neutral by 2030.
